Grow Groups

If you desire to connect at First Church, Grow Groups are a great way to do so. What are Grow Groups?

  • Grow Groups are intergenerational groups that include every man and woman and child who calls First CRC home.
  • Grow Groups meet at scheduled times throughout the year.
  • At Grow Groups, we share in the abundant life of Jesus together by building community, deepening faith and engaging in service.
  • Each group has an elder and deacon team who want to know and serve the people in their group. When you have a need, joy or concern to share, feel free to contact the elder/deacon in your group.

Anyone can get connected to a Grow Group. If you would like to participate, please email Shirley Van Heukelem at Come and let those in different ages & stages influence your faith!

For the 2017/18 educational year we are offering five Grow Group IN (community) & UP (time in God's Word) sessions, focusing on shared meals together and a time to reflect on how God is working in our lives. We will also offer various opportunities throughout the year to work on a variety of OUT (Service) activities.

The eight IN/Up dates for this coming year are:

  • Sunday, October 08, 2017, 11:00am -1:00pm
  • Sunday, November 19, 2017, 11:00am -1:00pm
  • Sunday, January 07, 2018, 11:00am-1:00pm
  • Sunday, February 11, 2018, 11:00am -1:00pm
  • Sunday, March 25, 2018, 11:00am -1:00pm
  • Sunday, May 6, 2018, 11:00am -1:00pm will be our Annual All-Church picnic celebration.

OUT serving opportunities will be offered throughout the year, as we assess where there is a felt need.

Call the church office if you have any questions about plugging in to Grow Groups. Everyone is welcome, and each session is designed so you can join in at any time.
